Pop and hip hop and electronic music is just insulting. The apex of meaninglessness. The kind of /alternative/ bands or artists that get acknowledged by awards shows or play on late night talk shows - man, alternative to what? Do people actually think Im this stupid? This is such cheesy bullshit. The fact that these /artists/ are somehow names people know and are something people are having a conversation about just brings my piss to a fucking boil. How can people possibly care about this? I dont want to insult people, but if this is genuinely where their interests lie, its actually very difficult to believe its not deliberate because theres an art to being THIS wrong. Somebody has to say we are actually good, and we will be acknowledged, and we are not going away, and you will give things that are good the fucking time of day.

Hip hop is genuinely the smartest type of music lyrically. Not mumble rap or gangsta rap which I know some people equate it to - that's hip pop, not hip hop. Good hip hop requires several re-listens because it's so cerebral.

Astroworld is a fantastic, complex album. Get over yourself.

>>50004549 No one's saying 6ix 9ine is high art Pop music is precisely that - popular. It's recycled, nice-sounding chord progressions and contrived themes. It purely exists to be shallowly appreciated. I agree that it's trash if you apply a lens of actual creative standards, but it was never intended to be assessed that way.

Well, i know what you mean by electronic music, but it really does depend, theres quite a few good artists around (IMO anyways), for example you have Porter Robinson, hes kinda low tier but whatever, and you have bands like Gorillaz (anything before Humanz, Humanz and The Now Now were utter shit)

>>50006672 because it's a great album. Only people who got cucked by blacks in high school are so damaged that they foam at the mouth at anything that's popular or hip-hop/pop. Yeah, a lot of it is shit. So what? Why does that anger you? Do you go around ranting about how a lot of modern art is crap or that the sugar lobby is evil etc? Probably not. It's just a sad cope tactic to try and make yourself feel better than the people you are jealous of deep down. 'Chad may be fucking my high school crush but he listens to Travis Scott! What a sad pleb!' Seriously get over yourself man

>>50006789 Seems like yo're just trying to justify your unintelligent tastes by appealing to popularity. Obviously we don't talk about how shit modern is - how many people go to museums nowadays more than once or twice in their entire lives? - but this "music" is pushed down our throats 24/7. And it's even eworse for non-westerners like me who have to put up with your money-grubbing bullshit.

>>50006913 'unintelligent tastes' grow the fuck up you autistic teenager. People predominantly listen to music for the feeling it gives them, not as some kind of mental training excersize to show how smart they are. There's nothing wrong with listening to pop. You remind me of this aspergers D&D player I had the misfortune of living with at uni who would unironically say that any music with lyrics is 'basic and for simpletons'.

>>50006538 I wouldnt mind nice sounding songs. They arent. I wouldnt mind contrived themes if there was anything redeeming or endearing about them or anything I could find for myself to get attached to. I find myself constantly defending artists later work or decisions to make major creative or stylistic changes on the basis that you can get away with almost anything if youre good at it. But thats a very big variable.

>>50006630 I dont understand why people like Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Adam Levine, Imagine Dragons, Kanye West, Post Malone, any other flash in the pan SoundCloud idiot who was born six months ago are names that people know and have conversations about and have opinions about. Why do I need this when I have The Menzingers? Creeper? The Dirty Nil? Spanish Love Songs? The XCERTS? Why is the least interesting song Panic! At The Disco have written in ages their first hit in years? Why does Brendon Urie insist on treating Halsey like a human being? Why do 5 Seconds Of Summer exist? Are As It Is or Waterparks to left of the dial for you, MTV Movie Awards? Why couldnt Ghost get that slot? Why arent Zeal And Ardour already as big as Ghost are now? In 2010 My Chemical Romance premiered a new video on MTV, why cant Basement do that now? Why is The Interrupters highest bragging right One semi hit single on only satellite radio? Don Broco cant even sneak their way onto party playlists in that world?

>>50007849 there's not much call for pop punk at this point of musical evolution. if your favorite bands performed 15 years ago they'd probably get much more traction. i think its also more difficult to make punk reflect so many attitudes, which in turn can make it difficult to listen to unless you're -that- into it. that being said, there's plenty of people looking for 'the next step' in the hip-hop/rap evolution, and its looking like the downturned 'souncloud rap' can easily slide into that socket. peep is a prime example of how eager people are for that sort of music
